Reply with quote

Hi,

I have used CA7 in multiple emulators. Most of them have been customized to use the PF7 and PF8 keys for page up and page down functions while I can issue CA7 commands using Shift + PF7 and Shift + PF8 keys.

I recently moved to a new shop and they use a QWS3270 emulator here. And this emulator has PF7 and PF8 keys assigned to default CA7 commands. I am able to use Enter key to page down. But I am unable to find a key that can help me do Page Up. I am trying to reassign the keys but not able to.

Any insight that can help me with PF7 and PF8 would be appreciated.

Thank you !

Did you try the CA-7 command
Code:
/DISPLAY,ST=KEY
to see how your site has the keys defined?

Hi Robert,

I just tried issuing that command and got the following results.

Code:
 /DISPLAY,ST=KEY
 
*** KEY DISPLAY ***  (VTM001 )                                        PAGE 0001
KEY      FUNCTION
 
           --- INITIALIZATION ---
PA02  VTAM LOGOFF KEY
PF01  LQ
PF02  XQJ
PF03  LREQ,SEQ=JOB
              (FORMATTED SCREENS USE PF3 TO RETURN TO MENU)
PF04  LRDY,SEQ=JOB
PF05  LACT,SEQ=JOB
PF06  /ECHO,M=(LJOB,JOB=XXXXXXXX,LIST=ALL)
PF07  /ECHO,M=(FSTRUC,JOB=XXXXXXXX,SCHID=###)
              (FORMATTED SCREENS USE PF7 FOR /PAGE-1)
PF10  /ECHO,M=(FJOB,SPAN=)
PF09  /ECHO,M=(LPRRN,JOB=)
PF10  /ECHO,M=(FJOB,FROM=(MMDDYY,1000),TO=(MMDDYY,2355),JOB=XXX*,T
PF11  XWLB
PF12  /LOGOFF
PF13  /ECHO,M=(LPDS,DSN=PROD.JOBDOC,MEM=)
KEY      FUNCTION
 
PF19  /ECHO,M=(FSTRUC,JOB=XXXXXXXX,SCHID=###)
PF20  /ECHO,M=(FJOB,SPAN=)
PF23  /ECHO,M=(DEMANDH,JOB=XXXXXXXX,SET=NTR)
PF24  /ECHO,M=(DEMAND,JOB=T0900100,SCHID=60)
           --- DEFAULT ---
PF01  /PURGPG
PF02  /FETCH
PF03  /NXTMSG (FORMATTED SCREENS USE PF3 TO RETURN TO MENU)
PA01  /PAGE+1 (FORMATTED SCREENS USE PF8 FOR /PAGE+1)
PA02  /PAGE-1 (FORMATTED SCREENS USE PF7 FOR /PAGE-1)


I tried running /PA commands but I dont think they overwrote the functionality properly. But looks like PF7 and PF8 has the FSTRUC and FJOB commands. Please advise if there is a way to override them ?[/code]

I've tried the /PAGE+1 and /PAGE-1 commands on my CA-7 system and they work. If they are not working for you, then you need to consult with your site support group to determine what you want to know (you should be doing this anyway, since we don't work at your site and don't know the potential impact of such an override).

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your response. /PAGE+1 and /PAGE-1 works for me too.

But when I try assigning these values to a PA key using the following command for my terminal,
Code:
/PA01,MSG=/PAGE+1


I am able to see the values getting overwritten for the session. But pressing PA01 does not scroll up the pages.
Code:
*** KEY DISPLAY ***  (VTM004 )                                        PAGE 0001
KEY      FUNCTION
 
           --- TERMINAL ---
PA01  /PAGE+1
PA02  /PAGE-1
           --- INITIALIZATION ---
PA02  VTAM LOGOFF KEY


Will it be possible for you to help me with assigning scroll up and down back to PA01 and PA02 (which I assume are the defaults) for my current terminal session alone ?
